Indianmandarins has reliably learnt that te NaMo Administration may extend the tenure of J S Deepak (Retd IAS:1982:UP) as India’s Permanent Representative in the World Trade Organisation in Geneva. His tenure is ending on May 31, 2020.

If some well-placed sources are to be believed the trade policy is revised every four years and at the critical juncture his tenure is being considered crucially important.

It may be underlined that Deepak, former Telecom Secretary, was in March 2017 made OSD in the Department of Commerce with immediate effect when he was attending the World Mobile Congress at Barcelona. Simultaneously, he was named as India’s Ambassador/Permanent Representative of India to the Geneva-based World Trade Organisation from 1 June till the date of his superannuation i.e. 31 July 2018. Later, on 31 July 2018, the NaMo administration extended his tenure from August 1, 2018 until May 31, 2020 on reemployment basis.
